Juggalos Moving From Cave-In-Rock, Sheriff Cites Vendor Dispute
Organizers of an outdoor festival featuring the rap-metal group Insane Clown Posse say they're relocating from their site in Southern Illinois' Hardin County.
Psychopathic Records organizes the annual Gathering of the Juggalos. In an interview with the Southern Illinoisian Newspaper the label’s spokesperson Jason Webber didn’t say why the festival was moving.
Hardin County Sherrif Jerry Fricker tells WKMS the record label's move may involve a dispute with vendors.
"I think the actual downfall of the Psychopathic Records being here, the clowns, was actually due to them not filling their contract with Tim York and their contractors out there."
The five-day concert that has been held in southern Illinois since 2007 draws tens of thousands of people. While it's credited for bringing a boost to the region's economy, the event has produced its share of unrest.
One man died during this summer's festival at the Hogrock campground and dozens of attendees were arrested on drug-related and disorderly conduct charges.
